Preserving Joint and Several Liability for Bad Faith Involving Multiple Defendants

When a claim is made against a defendant driver with minimum insurance limits, this reality poses a risk for a badly injured plaintiff, who, at least in British Columbia, is fortunately able to access his or her own underinsurance up to a minimum of $1,000,000 per person. But access to one's own underinsurance does not preclude a separate potential action against the defendant's insurer for bad faith.

Value, Not Volume

Some refer to firms like ours as "boutique"; others say "we specialize" in a certain area of the law. The Law Society of British Columbia prohibits lawyers from advertising that they specialize, which implies a higher level of education or training. They do permit lawyers to say that their practice is focused or limited to a specific area of the law. The lawyers at our firm, Cross Border Law Corporation, are licensed to practice in both United States and Canada, which is unique, in and of itself.
